BJP always stood for welfare of women: Rekha

Stating that the Bharatiya Janata Party has always stood for the welfare of the women, party Mahila Morcha Jammu District President Rekha Mahajan said that launching of a number of welfare schemes by Prime Minister Narendra Modi government at the centre stands testimony to and endorsement of the fact which reflects the concern of the party and its government towards the women. She said that on one hand schemes for social and economic empowerment of women are being launched by Modi government, here in Jammu & Kashmir also, the BJP coalition government has taken various initiatives for the welfare of women.
She added that BJP was the first political party in the country which had granted 33 per cent reservation to women in its organizational setup, which further strengthens the faith of the women, who have been getting associated with it in large numbers and BJP Mahila Morcha has its activists in every area of the state of Jammu & Kashmir. Both, the BJP and its governments at the centre and in the state are working with commitment for them but the opposition parties and their leaders cannot digest the same.
“It is unfortunate that some leaders of opposition parties are constantly engaged in malicious propaganda against BJP-PDP government in the state and BJP led NDA government at the Centre. These leaders are trying to mislead the people by raising issues which are far away from the realities and the people are not going to fall in their trap as they can understand their motives”, Rekha said and added that these parties have ruled the country for decades at the Centre as well as the J&K state for long period but did nothing concrete on the ground. Now they, out of their sheer frustration and after being out of power, are trying to mislead the people to gain the political ground which they have lost.
Rekha Mahajan said that it is not only the women for whom the Union government is concerned but the NDA has also displayed its pain and concern for the farmers, women, poor, youth and other down trodden sections of the society and hence specific schemes have been launched for each of them, which shows that the Prime Minister believes in taking all along in matters related to development and welfare and his slogan of “Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas” is being visible in his programmes and policies.
